Viking mini header tank/new header tanks - Vent line

Steel beams for building

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 11:58am 10 Comments

Hello all,

 I'm getting ready to build my 650 wings and thought maybe I'd get some steel beams as shown in the guides. 

 Are you all using them? Where did you get them?

 If you aren't using them, what are you using?

  I just used 2x4's for the rudder, stab and elevator.

Thanks!
